  • Total Precious Metal Weight: 1.09 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 18k white gold
  • Dimensions: This ring faces up 7.58 mm north to south (width). The shoulders taper from roughly 5.55 mm where the hexagonal head meets the band, to about 0.88 mm at the base of the shank. The ring rises about 6.05 mm from the finger.
  • Weight: 1.7 grams
  • Markings: 18K
  • Era: c. 1910-1920
  • Buyer Notes: This ring is an excellent example of late Edwardian and early Art Deco design, with sumptuous curves and bold geometries that together form a pierced filigree design that alludes to patterns found in nature. This ring shows no breakage to the filigree, and the moldings are crisp even after over 100 years. The diamond present was mounted sometime during the ring’s history, and is a replacement for an earlier original. Though a warm color grade, the diamond appears quite white to the eye. This ring is in great shape and is a beautiful example of its kind.

  • Center Stone Color: L-M (warmth evident in certain contexts, but faces up very white for this range)
  • Center Stone Clarity: VS1-VS2 (perfectly clean to the eye and under a loupe)

The Story:

Elegant and feminine, this engagement ring hails from sometime around the late Edwardian years through the early Art Deco period. With fluid openwork and organic allusions, this piece showcases the tailend of the Art Nouveau aesthetic as it became more and more geometric. The ring is symmetrical on both its north and south profiles, decorated by swag-like details and lotus blossom curves that somehow feel as oceanic as they do floral. The slim shoulders of the ring are adorned with crosshatches and circular details that create an intersecting pattern of x’s and o’s. 

This pierced filigree gallery sits proud of the finger approximately 5.8 mm, a confident height that is still very practical to wear. The filigree is also of enough heft that its delicacy does not prevent daily wear. This ring’s face features a hexagonal silhouette set on its axis, so that the points of the form beam north and south. The ring gives the effect of a clean bezel setting and a larger diamond center. Dainty bead prongs hold the diamond within it, each prong cleverly set within the points of the hexagon shape. The current diamond is a later replacement for an earlier original stone, as the Round Brilliant cut of the diamond dates to at least the 1940s-1960s, when Round Brilliants became the new standard diamond cut. 

Though a bit newer, the diamond that sits within this ring is astoundingly beautiful, and feels perfectly at home in the antique setting. This diamond is considered quite warm at an L-M color range, though it faces up very white. Only in bright sunlight and in the company of very white (think D, E, F) diamonds does this L-M diamond show its warmer hue. Indeed, the 18k white gold mounting makes the diamond appear brighter and whiter than it actually is. Its clarity is phenomenal, with no visible inclusions present, and none can be detected even in up to 90x magnification under a jeweler’s loupe.

This ring is precious, a nod to a bygone time a century ago, and yet no less wearable today so many decades later. The design it bears is crisp and lovely, an artful mix of soft curves and angularities that remind the wearer of its late Edwardian and early Deco context. It pairs beautifully with any diamond or engraved band, and would make an excellent stacker in the midst of a collection of rings. This piece would make an ideal engagement ring of modest scale that packs a punch in quality and sparkle.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
